Justin Timberlake made us wait seven years between albums last time, but in 2013 we haven't even had time to miss him. On Wednesday, JT completed a piece-by-piece online reveal for the "20/20 Experience: Part 2" track listing, giving fans something fresh to speculate about before the album drops Sept. 30. Now that we've got the pieces of the puzzle, we decided to put them together ourselves by guessing what each song will be about based on its title. Warning: This may be wildly inaccurate.

1. "Gimme What I Don't Know (I Want)"

A Sony PlayStation? Oh JT, every man wants one of those. The real answer is probably closer to a multi-speed showerhead.

2. "True Blood"

Well, it's official—he's a secret HBO vampire fetishist. We knew Jessica Biel's wardrobe had been looking a little dark lately.

3. "Cabaret"

JT's slap-happy cover of the 1966 musical's titular theme song. He turns up the horns 4,000 percent.

4. "T.K.O"

Nope, not about boxing. Instead, it's filled with allusions to his upcoming restaurant, Totally Krunchy Octopus.

5. "Take Back the Night"

Well crumb, this has already been released as a single. And it's not about the women's advocacy group either, although JT now knows THAT exists.

6. "Murder"

It's pronounced "murrrrdurrrrrr." And is carried out in the name of revenge.

7. "Drink You Away"

How to get rid of your murrrrdurrrrrr victim. Poof, disappeared!

8. "You Got It On"

Hopefully the follow-up to The Lonely Island's "I Just Had Sex." "And it felt soooo good!" Sing it, people!

9. "Amnesia"

His ruminations on what the hell happened to Britney Spears after they broke up.

10. "Only When I Walk Away"

Answering the time-honored question: "Justin, when are people checking out your booty?"

11. "Not a Bad Thing"

Definitely not about Miracle Whip, because that crap is disgusting.
